We visited Snowdonia one day during a long weekend in North Wales. We drove up from London, and it took us around 5 hours.
We decided to drive, as having a car is the easiest way to explore Wales. Although there is a train network and various bus routes, having a car made it quick and easy for us to get to those off the beaten track places without any problem. For the most part, we found the roads in Wales to be in excellent condition and well signposted.
Driving in Snowdonia was fabulous - amazing views to discover and good roads as well. At one stage we headed down a very narrow road for a few kilometres - it was a one lane road, with the occasional wider section if a car happens to be going in the other direction…though you or they may have to back up several hundred metres! Luckily we didn't meet any other cars on this road, and really enjoyed getting right off the main drag to explore the countryside.
If you don't have a car, or don't want to drive into the national park, why not try Snowdon Sherpa, which is a park-run group of local companies whose buses run on a series of routes throughout the park. You can buy a day ticket (for only a few pounds) and travel all over the park, stopping pretty much where ever you like.
You can also travel to some of Snowdonia's main towns by bus, via the Arriva network.
